Game Box Score

MEDFORD -- Tufts took an important 8-3 victory over Bowdoin College in the opening game of a three-game series between the NESCAC East Division rivals on Friday afternoon at Huskins Field. The Jumbos got another solid start from junior Adam Telian (Stoughton, MA) and opportunistically scored eight runs on eight hits.

Telian and Bowdoin starter Joe Pace (Newburyport, MA) threw blanks for the first three innings. Bowdoin got on top 1-0 when freshman RF Marc Dallaire (Peabody, MA) reached by error and scored on a sac fly by senior LF Jon Koperniak (Adams, MA). The Jumbos answered immediately, knocking Pace out of the game in the fourth. They sent 10 men to the plate and scored four times. Before departing, Pace walked four Jumbos in the inning and surrendered a two-run single to sophomore 2B Kevin Casey (Milford, MA).

Bowdoin closed the gap to 4-3 with two in the fifth. Senior John Lawrie (Walpole, MA) worked a lead-off walk and junior 1B Patrick Duchette (Wales, ME) singled. The Polar Bears loaded the bases on a Jumbo error after a Kenneth Kozens' (Falmouth, MA) bunt. Lawrie scored on a walk to Chris McCann (Hopkinton, MA) and Duchette came in on a passed ball.

A two-run single by freshman DH Corey Pontes (Milton, MA) in the sixth and an RBI base hit by Casey in the seventh gave Tufts some breathing room at 7-3. Junior Jason Protano (Milford, MA) came on for Telian in the eighth and mowed down the Polar Bears six straight. Pontes doubled and scored on a wild pitch in the bottom of the eight.

Casey, Pontes and sophomore CF Dave Katzman (North Andover, MA) had two hits apiece for the Jumbos. None of the three runs scored against Telian were earned. Tufts improved to 14-6 overall and 4-0 in the NESCAC East.

Bowdoin got two hits from sophomore DH Joe Berte (Marlborough, MA). Bowdoin, the NESCAC East champion a year ago, fell to 9-9 overall and 4-2 in the league.
